Axis—in conjunction with Social Art Network—are proud to announce the launch of their Social ARTery Pioneers programme to assist in the development of a new online platform for social practice artists.
The Social ARTery is an interactive online exchange platform that helps facilitate remote collaboration and creative making. Conceived in response to the growth of community-centred art making and the current need for better digital solutions to support participatory work as a result of Covid-19, the platform represents an alternative to mainstream social media sites, to create and present participatory art innovatively, run workshops, host peer-to-peer meetups and archive the learnings for the benefit of the wider artistic community.
The ARTery project team, comprising R.M Sánchez-Camus (Lead Artist), Lucy Wright (Social Producer), Mark Smith (Axis Executive Director), Daniela Liberati (Project Coordinator) and John Whall (Digital Mentoring Support) will be working closely with the Pioneers to trial the platform, currently in Beta format, before it becomes more widely accessible to artists.
If you would like to stay in touch with the development of the ARTery and be the first to know about future activities and opportunities, you can join the mailing list here.
